Plant-based proteins are tricky. It is difficult to get a complete protein that contains all eight essential amino acids. Both soy and hempseed are great sources of protein because they contain all known 21 amino acids. Many soy-protein users are straying away from the questionably genetically modified bean and looking for a new alternative. Hemp Protein is the wave of the future for protein users. Hemp is easy to grow organically and requires barely any pesticides or fertilizers to grow. The hull of the seed is included in processing giving consumers some of the minerals, vitamins, and fats in the final protein powder. Dairy based protein products containing casein may help build muscle, but they are unsustainable sources of protein and can wreak havoc on the digestive system. Hemp is a much more nutrient dense and sustainable alternative.
Here are the top 3 reasons to switch to hemp:
- Easy on the Stomach
